  • Could be a kidney infection. I'd definately go back. Most docs say if symptoms don't improve or worsen, to go back.

  • If the meds don't help within a couple of days, I'd definitely go back. Hope you feel better soon!

  • Well, I don't think the Mirena has anything to do with it but if you don't feel better definitely go back to the dr!

  • Sometimes bladder infections can be resistant to some antibiotics. I would go back to the doc to get a diff script. They may want to take a culture. Drink some cranberry juice in the meantime. Sorry you're not feeling well.

  • When did you start the meds.. It does take time for them to get in your system and start working but it should start to improve after a few days. Each day should get better and better. Keep taking the meds until they are gone or the Dr changes them to something else.

  • Yep, I would go back.. Why only 3 days worth ? Most of the time they are given for 7-10 days.. If you have a family Dr, I would go to them.

  • I'd give your dr. a call as soon as possible.

  • Sounds like you might have a stone stuck. Go to the ER.
